Match Official Pre Season Prep
February 6, 2018

To our valued Match Officials

As we embark on a new and exciting season in Ontario, the LTOD program would like to announce 2 new programs that may assist you in your pre-season preparation.

Firstly the Practical Training Exercises book which is available here page/show/3922725-ltod- education-material .  These sessions are for anyone to utilize, you could do as a group, individual in some cases, or as part of a pre-season training program.

Secondly, the Fitness Training Module for Match Officials.  This plan has been developed by Kuizan Weekes, FIFA Fitness Instructor.  Cut and paste the following link into your browser fitness-program

Being fit is a requirement in the modern game. No longer are the days when the referee can officiate the game in and around the centre circle. The objective of this training program is to offer Match Officials a structured approach to increase their muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardio-respiratory fitness, flexibility and explosive power.

This will help with both the beep test and the FIFA Hi Intensity Test as well as match fitness for the upcoming season.

Thank you,
